Benito Mussolini (July 29th, 1883–April 28th, 1945), Il Duce of Italian Fascism and the Prime Minister of Italy from 1922 to 1943, is a man of undeniable historical impact. This arrangement of his early political speeches begins in November 1914, after Mussolini is expelled from the Italian Socialist Party for advocating Italian intervention in the First World War. The speeches continue throughout the Great War, as Mussolini joins the fighting ranks of his countrymen, and advance through his political development, the creation of Italian Fascism, and the founding and rise to power of the National Fascist Party, which ruled Italy from 1922 to 1943.
Originally published in 1923, Mussolini as Revealed in His Political Speeches was selected, translated, and edited by Baron Bernardo Quaranta di San Severino, who also introduces the collection and each speech with a brief overview of context. The speeches are arranged mostly chronologically, with Severino dividing his speeches into categories with overlapping timelines in the post-war period. This presentation represents the different aspects and focuses of Mussolini’s speeches more clearly, whether regarding labor, the people, or policy.
Antelope Hill Publishing is proud to preserve these early speeches of Benito Mussolini in a newly edited physical edition: Voce del Popolo, the voice of the people. In Il Duce’s own words, “There is not a post-war phenomenon of greater interest and originality in Europe or the world than Italian Fascism.”
